SHOW BITS: Did you get those Oscar bets down?
LOS ANGELES (AP) — If you were a betting man or woman with a penchant for offshore wagering, the Oscar odds would be ever in your favor if you backed Julianne Moore for best actress, JK Simmons (best supporting actor) and Patricia Arquette (best supporting actress).
That’s based on wagers from United Kingdom sports book William Hill.
But don’t expect a fortune. The three were such front-runners that a $100 bet would only win you a dollar.
Biggest longshot? Steve Carrell for best actor in “Foxcatcher.”
If he wins, a $100 bet would pay off with a $20,100 return.
